Dragnet Drag - Peter Murphy - a live history

Peter Murphy a live history


July 5th, 1983, at the Hammersmith Palais concert the final nail was driven in the Bauhaus coffin. For Peter Murphy, this new beginning would yield little live material. Public appearances were limited to two interpretive dance
performances, and a stiff "His Box" on "The Old Grey Whistle Test" music show.

1986-1987 "Should the World Fail to Fall Apart" -era

Following a successful album collaboration with Howard Hughes, Peter assembled a touring line-up, and hit the road again, the first real live performance in three years. Following some warm-up gigs in Italy, by UK dates, and a 19-date US small club tour beginning in Boston. Howard Hughes would quit before the American tour to concentrate on his own projects.

Band Personel:
Howard Hughes-rhythm guitar, keyboards (leaves before US tour)
Terle "Ted" Bryant -drums
Eddie Branch -bass (uk decay)
Paul Statham - keyboards (b-movie)(USA rhythmn guitar, full keys)
Pete Bonhas - lead guitar
